EASLEY — Baptist Easley Foundation executive director Mark Eisengrein has announced his retirement, effective May 15.

Eisengrein has directed the hospital’s foundation for almost 20 years. He previously served in various fundraising positions at Clemson University and Valdosta State University in a career that has spanned more than 35 years.

“Let me express gratitude for the past and current hospital leadership and for the privilege to serve as the foundation’s executive director,” Eisengrein said. “Let me also thank the foundation board members who served selflessly during my tenure. We could not have accomplished all that we did without their help, guidance, encouragement, and financial support.”

“On behalf of Baptist Easley, I am grateful for Mark’s leadership in raising funds to enhance the quality of care and for his years of service to Baptist Easley and the community,” Baptist Easley CEO Michael L. Batchelor said. “He leaves with us a legacy of support in this community that we will continue to nurture. Our prayers go with him and his wife Sallie as they begin a new chapter in their lives.”

Baptist Easley, in conjunction with the foundation’s executive committee, will conduct a search for a candidate to lead the foundation.
